Incredible Airline Fares, 25% Off Hotels Among Deep Discounts
By Kevin Wilkerson, PubClub.com Travel Blogger
Flights from Los Angeles to Denver as cheap as $200. During the peak of ski season!
Flights from the West Coast to Hawaii as cheap as $250.
Feeling like visiting Paris? It’s only $278 on American from JFK. A flight from that airport to Miami is just $58 on Frontier. Fifty-eight dollars to fly to Miami!?
Free change fairs from the airlines – United just announced if you book before March 31 you can change any flight for free the next 12 months – and hotels offering discounted rates, now is a great time to travel.
The coronavirus may be scaring off some travelers (as well as countries, cities, states and even events with cancellations) but for others this is a prime time to travel. For cheap.
Add to this the fact that with fewer airline passengers traveling to destinations and events, hotels are hurting when you arrive in a city. Especially in places where events have been canceled such as Austin (South By Southwest ) and Anaheim, CA (lost two major conventions). Hotels in New York are offering 25% discounts on rates.
Should you be scared to travel? Not if you’re healthy and take precautions, such as washing your hands after using railings and areas where people touch with their hands. Do you need to wear a mask? No. If you’re super cautious, you’re better off wearing gloves. PubClub.com has this complete guide on how to avoid the coronavirus when traveling.
Personally, I would avoid the large cruise ships at least thru March as there are 3,000-4,000 people in a very confined space for a long amount of time (one to two weeks), but otherwise, take advantage of what is now a prime time to travel.
